My work Catalog of Species was performed and recorded by the wonderful New York-based ensemble sTem in 2017 at Cornell University. I bring the critically endangered Bornean Orangutan and bird interactions to the concert staging in this work. I significantly benefitted from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s archives and my own field recording analyses.

 

2020 has reshaped the common sense; the ordinariness of our lives has become surrounded with the questioning of the sense of place, risk, environment, territories, and lives within and beyond our own more than ever. As a collective, I’m happy to be part of this project that might touch your lives and I’m hoping to generate an awareness to support the lives that include both human and beyond human species in similar and distant habitats.
